United Nations human rights chief Michelle Bachelet called on the United States to address systemic racism during her opening speech Monday for the Human Rights Council in Geneva.
Former president of Chile and U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet called for “urgent and profound action to combat systemic racism” in the U.S., according to the Associated Press (AP).
Bachelet expressed concerns about use of force by police in cases like Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin, and Daniel Prude in Rochester, New York, per the report. She said the lack of accountability “for many prior killings underscores the gravity of this crisis” and that police reform needs “to be matched by real change to create an environment in which African-Americans feel they are protected by law enforcement and the state.” (RELATED: UN Removes Anti-Racism Survey After Accusations That A Question Was Racist)
